It's All Because (The Gays Are Getting Married)

A brilliant political parody music video from Oded Gross. I'm biased. One of my oldest and dearest friends, Brian Siegel, plays the Gay Guy Gardening. He's so cute in it too!

The Big Gay Dinner: Year 5!

I started this out five years ago at Comic-Con as a small get-together with some other gay comics industry folks and our friends, both queer and straight. The name was just my ironic nod to South Park.

I think it's a testament to the unity and enthusiasm of the people that come, that it has lived into that name, and become a large, inclusive, and just all-out fun event that folks look forward to every year. I'm honored that the community embraced it.

Here are some pics from Comic-Cons past: TBCG-3 and TBGD-4

Cute Spandex Guys Reveal Which Superhero They Would Do!

More from Hard Heroes 4 at MJ's! In the clip above I asked everyone, "Which superhero they would like to be... and which superhero they would like to do?" Aquaman seemed like a surprisingly popular choice. Who knew?

The clip features lots of awesome guys including Trevor Wayne, Ian O'Phelan, Tobias Trost, Sean Platter, David LeBarron, Justin Hall, Steve MacIsaac, Ken Knox, the folks from Lucky Legendary and The LA Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence!

Ted Abenheim and Eddie "Sister Erotica" Hibbs put together this benefit for Being Alive LA with help from the LA Sisters and a host of sponsors. I was there as one of the featured artists with the Prism Comics contingent.

There are pics and another video in my previous post. I'll post more photographs and another clip soon. (Busy getting ready for Comic-Con!)

Two-Fisted Fetish Weekend! Toonfetish BBQ and Hard Heroes IV

Gearing up for Comic-Con, I'm involved in two hugely fun events this weekend. So if your weekend can take this much action from both ends (Friday and Sunday) I invite you to come along!

On Friday Rick Castro and I are throwing the Feed Your Fetish Barbecue at the Antebellum Gallery. It's the closing celebration for the Toonfetish exhibit that is up right now. I promise it will be a sizzling summer soirée. We're screening "Kizuna" the first gay anime (yaoi), and Joe Phillips' adult cartoons "Stonewall & Riot" and "House of Morecock!" Suds 'n wieners will be served. (Click the image above left for details.)

Check out my previous Toonfetish videoblog and photoblog for more about the event.

On Sunday I'm one of the featured artists at the Hard Heroes party that Instigator Magazine is putting on at MJ's as a benefit for Being Alive LA. I went to the last HH party, and these are tons of fun. Lots of hotties in spandex... if that's your thing. And really, who isn't in to that?! (Click the image above right for details.)

Sketch Painting: Demonic Trevor

Sketch Painting: Demon Trevor

When I was chatting with Trevor and Sean the other day about Sean's DemonicSex book and got it into my head to do a little sketch painting of Trevor as a demon. Wanted to re-interpret his tattoos and re-interpret "demon."
